Product Description

Amazon.ca

Adam and Eve has an interesting premise with a lot of potential as a thoughtful, adult movie. Disheveled musician and college student Adam (Cameron Douglas, son of Michael Douglas) goes out of his way to meet the beautiful Eve (Emmanuelle Chriqui) on campus. In no time, the two are in love. Everything goes swimmingly except in the bedroom, where Eve asserts her right to remain a virgin until she's ready. Adam--though deferential--takes her requirement personally and demands to know what "ready" means. The pair go on like this for months, with Adam remaining true to his passion for Eve, despite howls of protest from his degenerate housemates (among them Jake Hoffman, son of Dustin Hoffman). Eve takes flak, too, from some of her own roomies, yet for awhile it appears Adam and Eve's story will include other young women inspired by Eve's insistence on respect behind closed doors. Unfortunately, writer-director Jeff Kanew (Revenge of the Nerds) elects not to go down that path and nearly derails the movie with inconsequential gross-out scenes at Adam's house. But the material dedicated to Adam and Eve's challenging relationship is discerning. --Tom Keogh

1.0 out of 5 stars Very gross. Little else April 15 2006
By D. Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
NATIONAL LAMPOON has come out with some great party movies. Unfortunately, this is not one of them. The premise is pretty straightforward: a girl in college does not want to go "all the way" with her b/f because she wants everything to be special. That's fair enough and is also understandable.

IF the movie would have only focused on that and nothing else (and I can live with it being over an hour shorter), then it would have been OK. The reason? Easy. Emmanuelle Chriqui is absolutely STUNNING as Eve. Her beauty fills of the screen; I'd love to see more of her work and hope that she gets better roles in much better movies than this farce.

Unfortunately, too much of the movie is about the subplot of living @ a fraternity house. To be sure, this is a very common motif in NATIONAL LAMPOON movies. The problem is, the fellow frat-boys of Adam are beyond disgusting. Moreover, the movie wants to "push the envelope" of being nasty, relying on shock-value more than doing something because it has any humor value.

Cameron Douglas is a goon; I was a bit surprised to learn that he was the son of Michael Douglas. He certainly does not have any acting ability whatsoever, unlike his father & grandfather. Apparently in this film he is a sort of Ron Jeremy anti-hero type; the dufus guy who ends up with the sizzling hot babe.

This is the bottom line, and I will be as fair as I can be: if you crave bathroom humor and simply can't get enough of it, then by all means buy this DVD. If bathroom humor is your "thing," then this DVD is a dream-come-true.

However, if like me a little bit of that stuff goes a LONG way, then check out other, better NATIONAL LAMPOON movies such as BARELY LEGAL and VAN WILDER. The choice is your's.

2.0 out of 5 stars Riding the fence on this one Feb. 11 2006
By Chris Kennison - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
On one hand, I give the movie credit where other movies have been unrealistic and phony, ADAM & EVE had the guts to make something very real. At times, TOO REAL. At times, unnecessarily TOO REAL.

They just had to slip in the gross out jokes to please all the immature goofballs out there. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure there is a time and a place for gross out jokes, pubes in the shower etc., but they're less funny then something that takes execution and timing. Not to mention, they alienate the audience. The people that find that thing disgusting, are put off, and won't return.

Okay... back to the movie. ADAM & EVE is about love and sex. It's about a young HOT college girl, EVE (Emmanuelle Chriqui) and a typical college guy, ADAM (Cameron Douglas). They meet, find each other interesting, Adam tries to score and then Eve tells him that she's a virgin, and is being patient with her standing.

Then, as I said before, the movie is very real. All the things that come into play: the ridiculing friends, the things you do when your girlfriend looks like Emmanuelle Chriqui and you're being made to wait, the criticisms, the other girl that ISN'T holding out, etc. etc.

Although, I question one thing. Why in the world would a girl looking like Emmanuelle Chriqui be interested in this guy? She seemed like a nice girl. Smart. Nice room. Nice, wholesome girl. Yet, Adam is a partying bum. Lazy. Lives in a pig-sty. His yard looks like a trash dump and he goes and lays in his bed all day. His friends are the epitome of bums and womanizers... but then... I thought about it, and realized... actually, when I was in college, yeah... that was about right. Women liked these type guys.

Although, I do give the movie credit for being real, there wasn't enough going on. There weren't enough side plots and not enough to keep the movies pace going. When the movie deviated from the MAIN plot, it just went and told gross out stories with Adam's loser friends, or showed little side stories that never really explained themselves.

Ultimately, the only good thing I can say about ADAM & EVE is that it was realistic. Otherwise, the movie was less than average, and pretty forgettable.

2.0 out of 5 stars After school special everyone. March 30 2006
By Aaron Merkel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This movie is sometimes a comedy but mostly it deals with a real relationship and the problems that come into it when Eve wants to stay a virgin. Little bits are thrown in for comedic value and they center around Adam's roomates in college who are all disgusting (I would reccommend not eating while watching these parts, it could ruin your meal). Overall, everyone will see Eve as a total beyotch because she is being totally unfair in the relationship while Adam is a totaly douche. I would not reccommend this movie for it's comedic value, but maybe as an afterschool special? Ha

4.0 out of 5 stars Great "Guy" humor March 10 2006
By Shallott R. Guerin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Adam and Eve proved that "guy" humor at its funniest, is best served raunchy. I thought Adam's character was believable and well acted, although I doubt Cameron Douglas has had much experience with "blue balls." Eve's character was beautiful, intelligent and evoked my respect. The actress has a great ass and great assets as an actress. I thought the script was sincere, very funny and relevant. Adam and Eve treats a woman's "right to choose" to be a virgin in college (oh my God, imagine that!) with respect and a raunchy dose of humor.

1.0 out of 5 stars Flee this film, at all costs Jan. 20 2007
By D. Chambers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Most will watch this film to see virginity lost--after all, it is a National Lampoon title. A few may watch it to see how to keep their virginity until they marry, or perhaps die. Some like me will stumble upon it on late night cable, and find it a nearly perfect cure for insomnia. How could I know any one film could be so bad? In a spirit of genuine concern, I formally warn you.

No plot, no acting, no skin, no comedy, no action. This is not even useful for a Sunday school class on virginity. It is an atrocity and a zero. Rent Animal House or Vacation if you want real National Lampoon material, or anything else you please; just avoid this soap opera.
